Life Science Library Mathematics

This is from the cover of my 1963 Life Science Library Mathematics book. I just love these books ! I have: Mathematics, Matter, and Energy. They are old, but still really cool books, especially for the graphic design and the photography !

 

Quote from the book about the cover:

"An airy model of the spiraling helix joins two shapes found in all forms by mathematics: curve and line. The helix makes a familiar appearance in the ordinary screw."
