In this post I am highlighting some of the books in the popular science series published by Mir. The time of publication is from late 60s to early 70s. The books are in varied subjects and disciplines and the reason that I am posting them together is that their covers are in the same design style. A black band at top of the cover, with the authors name in white font. The title of the book is at the bottom with a colored band as the foreground. The color of the lower band depended on the overall design of the cover and the colors used there.
|1||Sounds and signs||A. Kondratov||1969||286|
|2||Planet of riddles||E. Novikov||1972||255|

|8||Cybernetics within us||Y. Saparina||1966||313|

how do u collect these books man?
How to download these books , Sir?
Please read FAQs if you are facing any issues.
I have “Cybernetics within us” by Yelena Saparina from the popular science series, and a few other books from Mir Publishers that I believe haven’t been posted here yet i.e., : “Machines of the 20th Century”, “Meet Aerospace Vehicles” , “In Quest of the Quantum”. but I don’t have a scanner. Would digital photos be okay to upload?
Dear Divya Thanks for the interest. The photos if not taken properly, with a tripod and glass over the book for flat pages, introduce a lot of undesired warping and distortions. To get focus all through the page is another problem, and flash produces another problem. To avoid this you might need to do a bit of tweaking before you get best possible results with a camera. If you wish to contribute I would suggest that a scanner would be an easier and better alternative. Typically once set, a book of around 200 pages, with 2-in-1 scan will take less than an hour to scan at 300 dpi. If you do not have a scanner you can use scanner at a friend’s place or at a place where there is scanner for example in your college. Let us know if you need any further help.
You can download app CamScanner free. Check if it proves useful.
In the Search for Beauty- Smilga
Thanks for the links. We have this book already posted:

I think this title is also a part of this series:
“The space and time perception by the cosmonaut”
By Alexei Leonov and Vladimir Lebedev
I have a photo of the cover but don’t know where to post.
I think there is another book in this series namely

I have a photo of the cover but not the book Sorry
There’s another book (not of this series)
Order And Disorder In The World of Atoms by A.I.Kitaigordosky
It was mentioned in the references of This Amazingly Symmetrical World by Lev Tarasov
Though I Have a photo of the cover of the book but I don’t have the original MIR published book
