I missed this when it happened (7/28/2008), but still better late than never and all that. I thought the addition of the C# wrapper was pretty cool so wanted to make sure I noted it.

If you're graphically "challenged," can you have too many free icon sets? Silk Companion #1 Icons

damieng - Silk Companion #1 icons

"...

My set was fuelled by a need for a additional icons and variations in the same format. I had hoped to create more original icons in the same style however time constraints meant that majority of the 460+ icons are derivations and recompositions of the original set.

...

I can always use more icons... and the FamFamFam Silk Icons set is one of my favorites...
