This paper aims to support quick and easy page access in digital documents. We tried to use a paper book as a device to navigate pages for digital documents. Our proposed system allows the users to perform the same interaction as a paper book such as inserting fingers among pages or folding an edge of the page as a dog-ear. Three experiments were conducted to confirm the effectiveness of the proposed system. As a result, we confirmed our proposed system was superior to conventional navigation methods especially in moving back and forth among pages.
