A colleague of mine went to the STC conference in Cincinnati in May 1999
and
saw a book called Icons (it was very popular and sold out). Unfortunately
she did not write down any identifying information about the book and with
only the title to go on, I haven't been able to find it. Does anyone know
the author(s) and /or publishers of this book and where I may purchase it?
It apparently comes with a CD full of icons.

Perhaps your friend means:

Horton, William K. The Icon Book: Visual Symbols for Computer Systems and
Documentation, New York: John Wiley and Sons, Inc., 1994. 418 pages,
softcover. Everything you ever wanted to know about icon design. Describes
the process for designing icons, provides guidelines for icon design, and
gives advice on how to design for international audiences. One version of
the book includes a disk with a set of 500 icons. Small companies that
can’t afford graphic designers might find this set of icons useful as a
starting point for design. ISBN 0-471-59901-8 (book/disk) $39.95,
0-471-59900-X (paper), 0-471-02497-X (disk)
