6k digitized childrens books, and affinity extended trial/sale
Bit of an odd double post.
Archive of 6000 childrens books, fully digitized. Not sure which are public domain, but still some stuff to read, and be inspired by.
Second note, Affinity programs are offering an abnormal 90 day trial during this outbreak, as well as 50% off all of their programs right now.

Stay safe everyone. I hope you are all well.

I've used Inkscape, a free vector program, but it's a little glitchy for me. I've been thinking about looking for something else to try out.
If you have time to answer some questions:
Have you tried the other programs?
How do they compare to Adobe's programs?
Do you use the program(s) on a computer or iPad (or both)?
@Miriam I use them on Windows, but the do have Mac support.
I don't own Designer, but have used it. It's wonderful, I cannot use Inkscape for the life of me. Their video tuts are extremely helpful, easy to understand, and free. I didn't buy it because I don't need vector right now, and want to focus on other things.
I just bought the Affinity Publisher, it supports indesign files which is a big plus. I've yet to do too much with it, but it's a dream. Will make publishing a breeze.
I haven't used Affinity photo.
Doesn't look like Publisher is available for the Ipad, but the other two are and on sale for $10. $25 for mac or windows right now.
Edit: To me Affinity design is better than Illustrator, but that could be a personal preference. And I've never really used Adobe InDesign, so I can't compare.
