It's amazing how far we've come since the days of the old Macintosh computer. Fortunately, you can now relive those times with these 8.5-inch by 11-inch limited-edition prints by noted interface designer and graphic artist Susan Kare.

The icons offered cover a wide range of her work, from the classic computer user interface elements and familiar digital Solitaire cards to a variety of iconic images such as a love letter, disco ball and a coffee cup titled "Caffeine."

Kare has designed thousands of icons for the world's leading companies; many have become familiar to anyone who uses a computer. Her icons are more like road signs than illustrations -- clear, concise and instantly recognizable -- and I wouldn't mind having a few of them hanging on my wall at home.
