Devious Designs - Manual
Dr Devious, the world renouned abstract scientist, has gone insane! No one
really minded when wild geometric cloud cloud formations appeared over his
laboratory, however, there were a few objections when the Pentacon became
a square and the Kremlin was cubed!
Dr Devious` obsession stems back to his acquisition of a cubist painting by
Picasso which he hung in his laboratory. He was so inspired by this
painting that his love for geometric forms became obsessive. then, one
morning, a sinister idea lept into his mind, he would invent a machine that
would cube the Earth!
But before he can impliment his master plan, he has to experiment, so he
tests his machine on world famous structures and objects. When he is
satisfied with his machine he intends to proceed with his master plan.
