Don't favourite this. There's a new version here
This archive contains all of the major icons in the British Library icon set converted into Windows ICO format. This includes PNG-compressed versions of 256x256 images, prepared for the consumption of Vista users. As ICO does not presently support 512x512 images, none of the original graphics are included.
Nonetheless, this totals somewhere in the vicinity of 710 icons which take up 203 MB. There are a few additional 16x16 status indicators. (There were a handful of images at resolutions between 512x512 and 256x256 which weren't included into the number in the Leopard release.) The byte-per-icon ratio is higher because the icons have been rebuilt to contain the various 32-bit resolutions they were missing before (64x64, 72x72, 96x96). This will cause them to appear smoother when being scaled. The problem with corrupted formats in "Control Panel - Fibre Channel" has been corrected.
This icon set contains an amalgam of images designed at various times for OS X 10.5 (at the time of its release) and for Windows XP. As such, there are a multitude of icons covering functionality found only in one or the other, but it is perhaps a familiar artform to the icon applicator to stretch metaphors until they fit in order to fill in missing holes in their set. Hopefully, those holes should be hard to find: all of the icons in several Windows DLLs have been replaced using the material from this set, including those in shell32.dll, to ensure their complete coverage.
All of these ICO files were prepared over the course of a few hours in Axialis IconWorkshop by Samantha Wright (samantha-wright.deviantart.com), out of my original sources for the British Library graphics, created jointly by myself and Tetragnostica (www.inkspill.org). Visit the former to immerse yourself in more resources for this and other sets. Visit the latter for a personal site based on the theme (and a proper good time.) The precursors to this set were released at my old dA account, aiolorwile.deviantart.com, which has a few other interesting things, too. All of the British Library releases for Windows posted there are included in this set.

144 MB, so it's not going to fit on dA. Go get the new version
UPDATE: Somehow, Miscellaneous - Multiple Documents.ico got shredded in the archive. You can get a fixed copy here: doom.iri5.net/pages/british_library/miscellaneous%20-%20multiple%20documents.ico (Right click, Save As.)
