One of the many great features of early Mac OS systems was the customisability allowed within the system. When Mac OS 7, 8, and 9 were in use the icon scene was massive. Icon sets were created by Mac users and design studios such as The Iconfactory and distributed on shareware CDs, Floppy disks, and the early internet. Users could browse icon sets, find an icon they like and apply it to any folder or file within their system. There were also tools such as iControl that would allow you to create customised sets and replace the entire system's icons.
I have always enjoyed the Mac Icon scene building my collection and customising my system. After many years I finally decided to create my own icons, some for personal use, some for my kids and other fun ones.
Enjoy these modern additions on your system!
