A WinRAR is You

This was originally a PCX, time stamp June 1992, found on an old CD-ROM. The first version of WinRAR that used the book icon was 2.0, released in 1996, so theoretically the icon might have been inspired by this graphic, not that it’s actually likely.

The oldest extant version of the program, RAR 1.54 beta (1995), still has a completely different icon.
