Many practices about using AR (augmented reality) contents have been reported in education fields; and the usefulness of teaching materials made by AR technology was verified. However; the study cases about using AR contents for book publishing are still scarce. With the publication of eBook; the possibility of AR contents increases and the synergistic effect could be expected. This study introduced the AR contents into book publishing field; gives three-dimensional depth to the visual information of two-dimensional original that in order to create multimedia pleasure. We targeted parent and child as our custom; and developed character AR contents to the picture-book. Readers can acquire the 3D data and of characters and compounds on the picture-book by using iPhone or iPad. We made comparative experiments by using manufactured AR contents. As the results; there was a tendency that the story in picture-book forms and with AR contents increased the understanding than the story written only in the text. Moreover; by adding AR contents to the 2D picture-book form; pleasure; fun and unpredictability can be improved.
