NOTE: all icons and related mods from British Library can now be found here.
NOTE: This is now old. Check out the 3rd edition!


British Library Unabridged.
SECOND EDITION
Containing 712 icons at a native resolution of 512×512 px.

This set is meant as sort of a catch up. It shall contain all icons from the previous primary Windows releases, plus a few more, to be released in PNG and ICO format. The ICOs have been rebuilt and now include all of the intermediary resolutions in RGBA—64×64, 96×96, &c. A few aren't actually 512, because they're status icons and stuff (generally 16×16).

The set itself will be released in the coming days. In another deviation. Or two.

(Why the gigantic preview image and lead-up? Why, because the other one is on my old account, it's out of date, and I didn't blow enough time making it, that's why!)

(The name I gave myself at the bottom reads "Samantha Wright the Blind" Well, literally it says 'right', not 'Wright,' but you get the picture.)

Also, I don't recommend clicking download unless you need to test your funky new image compression technology or something.

Maybe I should split this up into sets according to application/function... hmm... someday.

Links to various formats:

Windows (Up to and including Vista): samantha-wright.deviantart.com…
PNG (for skinning, Gnome, etc.): samantha-wright.deviantart.com…
Mac OS X (Up to and including Tiger): samantha-wright.deviantart.com…
Mac OS X (Up to and including Leopard): samantha-wright.deviantart.com…

The Leopard version should work on Tiger, but this is a) untested, b) much larger, and c) unnecessary.

DeviantArt was actually created to host software modding resources (including icons, themes, and wallpapers.) It's true there aren't many icon sets with more than five hundred icons (many artists release them one at a time), but, well, everything continues ad nauseam sooner or later.

If you distribute it free of charge, give me proper credit for the icons, and give me a link to it when it's done, yes.

That depends on a lot of things and unfortunately requires a lot of technical skill, unless you have a Mac.

Installing on Windows unfortunately still requires a considerable amount of technical expertise. To do it the easy way, get a program called IconPackager or something like it, and play around with it. I might also recommend getting the newest version of these icons instead of this old one.

I'd like to use this set in gnome...but there's not the .theme file.
May I ask if anyone has done one and if he can share it with us? I tried with some tutorials but it's a long work and I'm not very good at it ^^
Great work...I've been looking for a steampink icon set for ages!!!
