In sharp contrast to the other galleries, this one is brightly lit, with wall-mounted lamps casting an inviting glow through frosted glass shades. The lighting seems ideal for reading one, or more, of the many selections enclosed in gilded wood frames.

At the entrance, a sign warns you: "Adobe Acrobat required to view excerpts." Another sign, dated November 2006, indicates that with the availability of full CGW issues in digital format, this gallery will not be further updated.
