Icons are shortcuts to frequently used facilities. The more abstract the concept the harder it is to design an image. A printer is OK, but what do "30 days aged invoices" look like? (The answer is that they don’t look like anything - so any symbol will definitely need a good ToolTip.)

Technically, their design and size is constrained by the colour palette, and button sizes supported by the operating system.

This is a collection of various icons, buttons and branding logos designed for applications running under MSDOS, Windows 3.1, Windows 95 and MOTIF:
