Ritual Marks takes its name from the secret traces that medieval masons would leave in the buildings that they worked on. These marks oftentimes had a sacred, or auspicious quality to them. Set up as a devotional book of days, each page spread features a 'ritual mark' from my body that makes it unique to me.
