What the druids have to say about the album

It would seem that today’s architects have been impressed by the feats of their predecessor Squareonthehypotenus. This is borne out by a 16-page promotional brochure called «Scope: The Magic Post» («Scope: Le poteau magique» in French), which uses some of the adventure’s themes and images and was published by the French civil engineering company PPB-Saret in 1982. There is also a much rarer special edition put out by the public relations agency CIA, that organised the campaign.
