Saw the paperback book in the early 60's. Only saw the paperback book cover, didn't read or don't remember the blurb. About 200 pages. The man is being held in the robots arms the same way a person could hold a baby. I think the background to the picture is just plain pink color. I don't remember if the liquid is coming out of a spigot or flowing as a fountain. Pretty sure it was booze going into a glass. Not sure about that detail. The robot is very 1950's style, looks like it is made of metal plumbing parts, stylishly riveted together. This was around the same time The Long Afternoon On Earth by Brian Aldiss came out in the US.
