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 schedule—
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!) ·

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.

hey I love these icons and want to use them, but the site you linked for downloading won't let me download it... is there any other way I can get these icons?
Samantha-Wright Featured By Owner Jan 19, 2010  Hobbyist Interface Designer
See my reply to velvetkitsune's comment, above: [link] with no password should let you get them without trouble.

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!)

These are awesome, I love them! May I use these to make a PSP theme?
Samantha-Wright Featured By Owner Jan 16, 2010  Hobbyist Interface Designer
Yes, but make sure you link back, give credit, and let me see it!
Angel-in-Black Featured By Owner Jan 16, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
Thanks. :D

I'm not sure how to get a preview of the theme, but it's up here: [link]

Well, some screenshots would be ideal, but I trust you've done well. If you find yourself needing custom graphic resources for some future release or something, I'll gladly help where I can.
