Looks good to me, thanks for the idea!

I have a couple of suggestions for how you could try fine-tuning it  
(but they're just my thoughts, see how you feel about it):

(1) I think it'd be nice to have a bit more contrast between the  
(inky) face of the T and the (shadowed) sides, so that the shape of  
the actual T surface stands out more. Or perhaps you could consider  
keeping the rest of the icon gray but having the T surface "inked" in  
"TeXbook blue"?

(2) I understand that there's a lot of space below the T because the  
slug needs to have room for descenders. However, I'd suggest moving  
the T a bit lower within the overall body; although that might be less  
accurate, I think it'd look better as an icon.


Thanks again, great work!
