Did the Soviets ever publish photographs of the Earth's surface taken from any of their single-seat Vostok orbital spacecraft?

I do not recall ever seeing any, which surprises me as even Al Shepard managed to squeeze off a few during his brief MR-3 mission.

I have wondered about this also. I have never seen any.

In the front of Gherman Titov's "700,000 Kilometres Through Space" there's a colour photo of the Earth purportedly taken during his mission.
