Fialka Reference Manual 2.0
ISBN 978-90-79991-01-3

When we first found a Fialka machine in 2005, no information about this machine was available on the internet or elsewhere. So we decided to reverse-engineer the machine and recreate the entire circuit diagram from scratch. All we had available was a machine, a German Operator's Manual and a badly damaged machine that we were allowed to take apart. And so we did.

The result is a 140+ page manual with hundreds of drawings, photographs and circuit diagrams. The full-colour spiral-bound manual is available in printed form only and can be ordered directly from us. Each copy of the manual contains the full circuit diagram as an A3 fold-out.
