    No Joke, I’ve spent almost an entire day looking for the perfect Icons for a site I am building and was unable to find some for a few pages that fell even remotely into the category that I wanted. I called it quits for the day and woke up to find this link right away.

    This set has exactly the kind of icons that I was looking for the site. I had thought that I was just going to have to change plans because I’d thought I looked everywhere.

    Thanks so much for this link, absolutely fantastic!
