This decorative initial letter B was used as a drop cap alongside a poem. It features an open book with a quill pen, old-fashioned spectacles scrollwork, roses, fruit, a styilized su with rays shoning down upon an almost-naked boy with curly hair. The child is resting, or perhaps dreaming.

You could fairly esaily change the letter B here to anything ese you pleased.
