In this paper, we propose a method for reconstruction of 3D shape of book surface by integrating shape that is recovered from an image sequence taken with moving camera. The image sequence is divided into a number of blocks. The factorization method is applied to each block for obtaining a part of 3D shape of the object. The 3D shapes reconstructed from the block of the sequence are merged into one integrated 3D Model. For the merging, position and pose of each 3D shape is adjusted based on the surface normal of the overlapped area. The merged 3D model of all region of the book surface is shown for demonstrating the effectiveness of the proposed method.
