Initial Letter R
Initial letter R 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 letter is composed of one vertical line on the left of the page with a flared base. A line extends right from the top of the vertical line and curves back inwards to the middle of the vertical line. From the lower portion of this loop extends a diagonal line that swoops to the bottom right corner of the page. There are leaves, flowers, and vines behind the initial letter and spread out throughout the innermost box of the square.
