The augmented book is the system augmenting multimedia elements onto a book to bring additional education effects or amusement. A book includes many pages and many duplicated designs so that tracking a book is quite difficult. For the augmented book, we propose the hybrid visual tracking which merges the merits of two traditional approaches: fiducial marker tracking and markerless tracking. The new method does not cause visual discomfort and can stabilizes camera pose estimation in real-time.
