Very simple and nicely designed, 300 Images From 1800 Sites has a clip-art-ish collection of icons gathered from sites all over the web. The juxtaposition of, say, 87 shopping carts makes a lovely little magpie shell collection… so many designers struggling to be original in a tiny 16-by-16 pixel space! You can almost hear the conversations: “Can you punch up that tiny mail envelope icon so it looks a little more edgy, so it’s all floaty and fast with a little dangerous-looking zing to it? Like this would be the envelope your parents wouldn’t let you date, you know, but not in a scary way? Could you do that by tomorrow? Thanks!”
Question: can you spot the ugly Amazon shopping cart?
