Artist Page Hodel gifted her girl every Monday with a homemade heart throughout their relationship. They were made of hardware, grass, fruit and flowers as a show of love—a literal assertion that said, “I give you my heart.” However later, following the tragic passing of Hodel’s partner, she kept crafting those hearts in a tradition emoting a message of undying love.

Monday Hearts for Madelene features 100 images of Hodel’s hearts in a hardcover photo book exhibiting her unique, beautiful and inspiring handcrafted art pieces with a portion of the book’s royalties benefiting the Women’s Cancer Research Center in Oakland, CA.
