There is a new Very Important Feature that I’ll show you below now. It no needs explanations, but if you don’t find differences with the old version let me say you:
Look at the random factor!
Here they are the two demo videos of bee and frog models.
Finally the new version 3 of the Realbook preset is here.
There are important news that will make editing the book faster and that will make the result more realistic.

Realistic Random Distribution System
New Cover Textures System
Pages with Thickness
Adjustable position of the pages
Landing option for closed and opened pages

If you need a book with a curved spine on the hard cover, just add an FFD deformer as a child of the Cover Base object and deform it. Don’t forget to increase the number of X Segments of the Cover Base object.
If you need a book with a custom pages, for example with rounded corners or with thickness and so on, just follow these steps:
Go to the Layer Manager and make the hidden layer visible.
Create your own geometry for the page (with rounded corner, with thickness, …) and make it child of the Piano geometry. Adjust the position and the dimension (depend on your poligon).
3. Now disable the Piano geometry.
4. Return on the Layer Manager and hide the layer again.
5. Duplicate the page.
