I am unable to get to the Affinity Store.  I am in Canada.  For some reason my browser (OS X Safari 6.2.8) says it cannot connect.  

 

When pressing the BUY NOW button here: https://affinity.ser...igner/workbook/

 

 it took me to this address, but nothing:  https://affinity.sto...3675.1458891282

Having a similar problem, but in my case I don't see Puerto Rico listed in the shipping options. I bought both Affinity Photo and Designer from the Apple store but I wish I can buy it from Serif. Another option is going to Amazon where they also have it.

My goodness! The book has arrived here too, at 2pm in Dundee. Looks fabulous! The delivery man said he would have been earlier, but he had to stop in Manchester area to deliver Sunset's first! ( joking) Thanks all :)

 

Must admit, I'm getting a little jealous now...

Chances of it reaching the Highlands of Scotland quickly is very unlikely. One can hope though....

Oh, the book looks so cool but it cant be shipped to Russia... So i had to leave you without my rubles  :ph34r:  Do you plan shipping it to Russia later?

 

Sorry avo, this is an Amazon restriction, as we are using their European fulfilment centre.

chepo1956, Puerto Rico is not offered, sorry, but we are looking at why. This may be our fault.

Is this book designed for MAC user? Actually im a beta user on Windows.

 

It will be useful even for shortcuts and other topics treat?

 

It is ready for shipment?

 

Thanks. 

 

Although the UI screenshots are from the Mac version, the software is the same and the book is relevant to both. The shortcuts and accelerator pullout sheets have a specific Mac and Windows version.

 

Yes it is ready for shipment, the book that is, the software is nearly ready.

Our delivery mechanism is determined by our European and US Amazon fulfilment accounts. The shop is a new venture for us and we are in the process of checking the exact options available to us (with respect of shipping costs and import duty etc), so the list of countries may be added to in the future.

Wow, that was fast. Ordered yesterday, delivered this morning. About 150 pages in. Pretty good. Noticed a few basics I hadn't tapped into yet, going over the core skills. Have learned a few things among those, also.

Affinity Team, thank you for making this workbook. I greatly appreciate it and can't wait for my copy to arrive. Are you going to make a workbook for each of your software?

 

One for Affinity Photo and Publisher?

I ordered the book yesterday and received it today.  Impressive service for an equally impressive tome!

 

Thank you to everyone at Affinity!

First post!

 

I bought the book today. Was wondering if anyone can let me know how Jonathan Ball's chapter looks like - is it detailed? I did his Skillshare course and I'm determined to incorporate his style into my illustrations.

Have to love insomnia, working my way through the Affinity Designer Workbook, picking up little things that I hadn't noticed before and finally understanding the purpose of artboards! I've designed three colourways of the logo for my new imaginary company and I am waiting for my imaginary client to choose one and pay me some imaginary money. Imagine is the key word with this new book, it banishes the 'white page" syndrome and feeds my imagination.
