I remember a painting in a book from when I was a child. I think it was an anthology or encyclopaedia of sci-fi or something like that, and it was very large. There were several paintings in the book, but the one that really stood out was of a man in a space suit with some kind of propulsion mechanism. He seemed to be struggling to stay just out of reach of aliens on the ground, who were reaching up to grab his feet.
Can anyone identify the image or the book?
