Type Tuesday - Borders from the Franklin Type Foundry

Cincinnati, Ohio's Franklin Type Foundry offers its customer an exotic way to ornament advertisements and other printed materials with Chinese and Egyptian borders. These intricately designed borders depict Chinese dragons, bamboo and stilt walkers or Egyptian pyramids, camels and palm fronds. From Franklin Type Foundry's 1892 type specimen catalog.
