I am working on a small project where I need some of the basic icons: edit, favorite, delete. You know them.

Now i can download them all seperate, and put them together in a sprite, but I was wondering if there are ready to download sprites which I can use.

Now I am working on an accounting app, so it would be nice if the icons were not too childish. A little but of fancy business type icons.

The Tango Desktop Project is an open-source project that produces some great icons. They even have just such a image as you describe. You can find it by scrolling down on their icon library page.

The actual icons are (per the project's homepage) released to the Public Domain, so there will be no copyright issues whatsoever in using them.

what about glyphicons ? you can even use bootstrap css to use them directly http://twitter.github.com/bootstrap/base-css.html#icons


The famfamfam silk icons might work well for you, there are 1000 to choose from. You'll have to combine them into your own sprite though.
