Rae | 5 comments I remember having a book when I was 4 or 5 so, in 1983 or 4. It was a hardcover picture book, had a lighter purple and white cover. I think it was about artists and other random people in a weird fictional city. The villain"s name was hieronymous. The illustrations were weird and kind of dark for a children's book. It also smelled weird, but that might have just been my copy.

Mindy Jones (mindyrecycles) | 86 comments I was going to suggest Pish, Posh, Said Hieronymus Bosch, but it's too new.

"It also smelled weird, but that might have just been my copy." LOL

Were the artists humans or animals?

This doesn't exactly match but I'll throw it out anyway: it's about artists (who are animals) in a weird fictional city, and the cover is light purple and white, but it seems to be published in 2006 and the villain is named Count Rainier Rumolde rather than Hieronymous.

It's an illustrated chapter book.
