Library Icons 2nd Ed. PNGs. by Samantha-Wright Library Icons 2nd Ed. PNGs. by Samantha-Wright
HEY YOU: Don't favourite this. There's a new version here.

These are the original graphics for the Unabridged release of the British Library icon set. With only a few exceptions, they are at a resolution of 512◊512 pixels.

This takes up 250 MB when unzipped, and 249 MB when zipped, so obviously cannot be accommodated by dA's ~20 MB limit, so use this link instead:

New version here.

The list of included images is identical to the Windows version of the Unabridged release. See [link] for the complete list of icons.

Please use them in skins, projects, applications, and things. Give credit where credit is due, and tell me about everything you do with them! (I'm looking at *you*, guy who made an iPhone theme once out of the first release without telling anyone.)

Next up on the release scheduleó
more wallpapers ∑
application skins (mostly edits of default sins) ∑
modified Sandwich VS for XP (I guess I'll need to fill in the extra two styles) ∑
PSDs of books, documents, images, and other generics (with redistributable fonts included, hopefully!) ∑
&c!

Happy skinning. And hacking. And other things.

Just a note to the confused: these icons are the same colours as all of the other ones. They're just in PNG format. They're not magically silver-coloured or anything; that would look dreadful.

I tried everything I could to get megaupload & the ftp link to work. :( I connected to the FTP, but couldn't find the file with the icons.

If you're looking for somewhere to host it, I could give you some bandwidth... I had these icons awhile ago, somehow lost them, and I want them back!

...sorry. There was some internal network perturbation here this past week and one of the data servers was down. The FTP link (as written, with the "bl@" part) should work again.

Thanks for the bandwidth offer, though I'm not sure if it would be a wise idea to foist it on you. The current archive's a good 249 MB, and that's generally enough to be a serious impediment to most people's bandwidth bills. (It's also expected to grow in the very near future!)

Hello, I really like your icons. I was thinking in making a gnome icon theme (for GNU/Linux) with them, if that's alright with you.
That way we could install the theme system wide instead of replace each icon.
It would be easier if you had the icons in SVG format. Do you have these icons in that format?
I think, even if you haven't, it is still possible to do the package, but it would be much easier with SVG.
Your work is really really beautiful, thank you for it.

This seems to be lost on people quite a bit, but I'm afraid these icons were never vector-based. There is no way to make them into SVG files, except for embedding them as bitmap objects. As they are 512 × 512 pixels, however, they should scale down just fine.

True but I was thinking of some kind of black or dark grey leather effect instead of the brown. I've seen it done and it is a beautiful combination.

It can be done! But it tends to feel less old-fashioned-y. The love of brown is a downright lost art!

I have to agree with you though I do believe there are times when a touch of black and silver can be very nice as long as they aren't the only colors in the mix. The colors gold and brown are kind of a lost mix as far as art is concerned. So many people who could use them in their work have a tendency to ignore them. I do love the combination myself so please don't get me wrong it's just I have a special love of silver. This is purely a matter of aesthetics and nostalgia and has nothing to do with right or wrong.:)

OMG thank you so much. I didn't want to reply back until I got it finished, but my newest deviantion & Desktop screenshot is of what I did with your icons.

It's rather difficult to replace all of your icons on vista without downloading an official theme, so I just used your icons on my doc where I thought possible. In any case, you should have a look at it! [link]

Quite lovely! Yes, I understand the travails of attempting to do anything with Vista; I recently lived with it for a few months and never got around to replacing any of the resources. There's just so much stuff that's unreachable buried deep down in the system in weird animations and resources and things that it seems a tad futile, and the VS management is so limi... anyway.

Nice!

It's a nice change of pace considering the horreurs that almost all XP-era themers came up with. (Despite having one or two little bugs.)
