I treated myself to the Affinity Publisher workbook in an attempt to wrap my head around formatting in Serif’s new and improved software (I still prefer Page Plus at the time of writing but that’s another story (which you can read about here).
I know there are plenty of ‘how-to’ videos for Affinity Publisher on Youtube, but I prefer written instructions, so when I saw this workbook was being publishing, I jumped at the chance to buy a copy. Now, I have no more excuses. I am going to master Affinity Publishing.
The book itself is gorgeous – over 500 pages in hardcover with glossy-looking pages filled with images and instructions divided into six chapters:
- Interface Tour
- Core Skills
- Page Design Principles
- Professional Projects
- Creative Projects
- Corporate Publishing Projects
I’m not a complete novice as I’ve formatted several books in Page Plus and stumbled through one format in Affinity Publisher (while not really understanding the program).
Page 325 of this workbook is going to be my new best friend (a whole section explaining how a paperback book is put together – with pictures).
Upon completion of this section, I should have a deeper understanding of how to use Affinity Publisher – and a completed format of Illusional Reality Duology paperback.
You can buy the Affinity Publisher on Amazon
