Initial Letter B

Description

Initial letter B is capitalized. The letter is framed within a double-lined square. The letter is white on a black background, the background is studded with white dots. The left side of the letter is a vertical line that flares at the top and bottom. The right side of the letter is made from two hooked arches that loop to meet in the middle. They are widest at the peak of the arch. There are leaves, flowers, and vines behind the initial letter and spread out throughout the innermost box of the square. A grotesque face in profile facing right extrudes from a foliated arabesque in the upper right quadrant.
