The books look like a uniform-bound set, while the shelves themselves are modelled from a single object and intended to look like a solid piece of furniture. I normally place relevant-looking ornaments on the top shelf when I include this in a scene. Despite simple modelling, this one does look quite convincing close-up, just don't try to read the titles of the books as there aren't any. Easily remedied with some editing of the book texture if you fancy. The wood is the Max standard 'burloak' texture put to good use and, hence, is not included. The book texture is present.
