Notes:

This capital letter “U” is suitable for use as a drop cap (dropped capital) or a decorative initial; there’s also a small version for an avatar or icon. It shows a sun, with rays and a face rather like a lion; perhaps it would be good for a chapter opening in a Narnia book! Note that this is really a “V”—and the “V” looks like a “U.”

There’s also a separate image with just the happy vintage sun face.
