With the growing appreciation of Odorico mosaics come the guided tours, books, exhibitions, and careful cataloguing and archiving of Isidore Odorico's work. The Musée de Bretagne in Rennes has a lovely collection of original designs for businesses and signs, such as this one for a butcher's shop (c1935-40). Without it being official, the Museum says, there is a tradition of using certain colours to indicate the nature of different shops: red for butchers and charcuteries, blue for fishmongers, yellow for bakers. Here Odorico creates a striking design which advertises the Boucherie Lucas 'de façon colorée et joyeuse' (in a colourful, joyful way).
