85 free icons — 1960s Matchbox cars

Matchbox car icon preview

A few years ago, I saw some scanned pages from a 1969 Matchbox car collector’s catalogue. A few days ago I sat down and went nuts for three days to turn those beautiful illustrations into icons for Mac and Windows. It was tricky; the registration1 was out on the original print making it difficult to cleanly remove the car from the white background. The upside is the icons have an authentic retro vibe!

Here’s a large image showing all 85 icons.
