GTK3's CSS styling feature is a huge draw for many developers. Being able

talked at greater length about that rather than GObject, since many
developers using any language binding stand to benefit from CSS themeing,
versus the few who might one day use a little bit of GObject.

I personally use more often GObject features than CSS. CSS is more for
theme authors, not application authors. A small GTK+ app doesn't really
need CSS, the available GTK+ widgets are sufficient and have a decent
theme with Adwaita.

I would cite some of the more unique widgets in GTK also, especially the
newer ones that might not be known by people familiar only with GTK1 and

To better understand widgets, screenshots are needed, and a flyer is too
small for screenshots (at least the three-folded A4 page).

As you said, two A4 pages are not enough for describing every
interesting features. Nothing prevents us from writing a brochure about
GTK+ only, and another brochure about lower-level libraries, but it'd
become maybe a bit too much content (that said, the FreeBSD stand has
almost 10 different flyers! And in different languages).
