POV-ray (http://www.povray.org) is a 3D image renderer. TEX is a text typesetting engine. The two programs have much in common: Freely available; multi-platform; unrivalled output quality; text-based input; ability to read and write files; fully programmable. We will show how these two programs can work together to make beautiful documents. In particular, we will concentrate on how TEX can use POV-ray to add photorealistic embellishments to textual documents.
