Some of the most beautiful and intellectually sophisticated book paintings of the Italian Renaissance were created for the Frankfurt merchant Peter Ugelheimer (1440/45-1487/88), who emigrated to Venice. The Frankfurter not only has a great importance as a client of miniatures and exquisite book covers, but he is also one of the pioneers of the modern book trade and contributed as a financier to the new printing industry and finally as a publisher significantly to the rise of Venice as the European capital of printing. For the first time, the Frankfurter Dommuseum presents Ugelheimer's books at an exhibition in Germany.
