Just a div that is shown next to a book with the description text.
Roughly like the ones that appear next to screen shots in the old
page: http://plt-scheme.org/screenshots/.

(Actually that same code could be used, just make it a horizontal
widget instead of vertical, add some space between the images,
and make a much smaller big--small size difference.  It does have a
few bugs which I fixed later, as seen on my pages, eg,
