Story of Glass icons by Majnouna Story of Glass icons by Majnouna
To download the Mac and PC icons please refer to my :pointr:Downloads Page:pointl:, where you'll find all my icon sets, my terms of use and the licenses I offer.

The icons in this set were extracted from my illustrations for the 11th book in our [link](Lebanese Heritage) series, Verre et Verriers. The book covers the history of glass from the earliest we know of its invention to the rise of Venice as a centre of glassmaking, at which point our region (the Levant) ceases to be of significance in its development.

I had no idea I had drawn quite so much glass, but there you have it, 47 icons spanning, from top to bottom: Mesopotamia, Egypt, Phoenicia, Roman Phoenicia, Byzantium, various Islamic dynasties, and finally Venice. They were not created with an icon set in mind, so they are not as consistent as a set ought to be, but they're a nice accompaniment to the book (which I highly recommend an English version is in preparation). Enjoy!

Some spreads of the book can be viewed on dA:

Sorry, but I can't seem to be able to find the PC version (i.e. .ico) files within the zip for this.

I see that I removed them. The file was so absurdly large. Maybe I should put them back...

Sorry for the delay in replying. I for one would really like them to be available. I am a creator of custom content for the ancient computer game Neverwinter Nights, but have very little talent at actually drawing anything. Please may I have your permission to convert your icons into items usable within this game. You can view a list of all that I have made for it at the following address

and the type of thing that I would like use your icons for are my glass bottle item at

I should point out that I do not get paid for what I create, I do it merely to share with the nwn community.

I await your reply with anticipation.
