Hi, I hope that in the future there will be an electronic version of the book that will get updates. All the best and good luck!

 

That sounds like the help file... ;)

Congratulations on the release of your AD workbook.  Based on what I've seen so far, it's very impressive and professional looking, and looks to include quite a lot of good useful information.  My question is, will it be available in local bookshops at some point in the future?  Say, all the way over here in Canada via Chapters Indigo?  Tariffs are a major pain on the wallet.

 

I know you currently have no digital edition planned, but I would like to recommend in the future a digital edition that could be made available to those who purchase a physical copy of the book.  This way, when the time comes in the future to make changes or edits, while it would be impossible to update the physical book without a new release, the digital edition could be easily updated at no physical cost to Serif.  Plus, sooner or later, as much as we hate the idea, a digital edition will be made available illegally online.  Beat them to the punch by releasing your own legal digital edition.  it will most likely still pop up illegally online, but your users will be more likely to get it through you than risk their computers' security on questionable sites.

Am i right that the Affinity Review magazine is history?

Yes, in the form that it was - however, we are working on something else which will be revealed in the not too distant future ;)

Is there any chance you can send this book to Puerto Rico? We are part of USA since we use the same currency and post office zip codes. I noticed that even though it says USA on one of the countries, the ordering process won't let me put in Puerto Rico in one of the states like other forms do. I went to countries to see if I could select Puerto Rico and it does not appear there or anywhere. I would love to order the book.

Looked at the sample section. Nice layout, pleasing to look at.

 

At the first reprint, consider "fixing" the kerning for the word Frame in the same manner as the word Lace. I don't know if that was a real job and is set in stone at this point, but for the book it may be nice to have the whole logo fixed  ;)

This was the first error* we noticed and we did not believe it.

 

Now we have the courage to criticise unprofessional work.

Oh Yeah. I am all over this, it's a no-brainer!

 

Can't wait to get my hands on it, it looks gorgeous. I respect your decision to go hardback print only option. PDFs are easily pirated and passed around, can't do that with a lovely tome like this. I'm sure this is going to boost my eejit creations to no end!

 

Now to wait on the postman.....

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.

Seriously, less than 24 hours when it quoted 5-7 days.... Did someone from the team deliver this to you personally? :)

Delivery man turned up in between the freezer man and the Ikea man - a good morning! I do live in the centre of the universe, though, Greater Manchester :)

I was very surprised, too; all the delivery men know that the front of our house is the safest place round here to set down, run and deliver and zip off again, so I took no notice until the man walked to the front door! I'm supposed to be helping hubby to build new computer desk, but somehow or other I keep coming here (poorly knee can be a blessing, sometimes), for another flip through the book :D :D :D

Going by the other items in the pic, I can't help wondering whether it's really an early Christmas present or actually a late birthday present! Or perhaps it's a bit of both. ;)

It's traditional in our house that we enjoy birthday cards for a week, they are so pretty it's a shame to do otherwise. I think the book is a birthday present to myself perhaps - it certainly isn't going to be hidden away until Christmas :)
