This is straight out of carrara (apart from border etc). The floor texture is from a photo I took when I was in a guesthouse a few years ago in southern Indiana. People must think I'm crazy if they see me taking pictures of floors and walls.

The book model is by Alfons Blom I just tweaked it a little. The top three books are textures taken from scans of books my wife has laying around. The bottom book is the texture Alfons supplied with the model. I wasn't going to include it, but it's sucha nice little model, that I felt it only fair.

No lights in this scene. It's lit with an HDRI and GI Sky light and indirect lighting. Took about 3 minutes to render. I LOVE carrara.

Thanks for looking and please look at the full sized version to avoid distortions.

I know what you mean about taking floor and wall photos...had all sorts of people look at me strange when pointing my camera at a seemingly blank wall.

Very cool on the realism here and at only 3 minutes render time to boot!!
Excellent job on the textures too.

Beautiful use of Carrara. I can almost smell the old bookish aroma!

At first I wondered why you were showing a photo of a pile of books, until I read on and realised that you had created some fantastic realism. fantastic work.
