    Rubber Soul is a complex on Liverpool’s Mathew Street, dedicated to the city’s most famous sons, the Beatles.

    The shown neon signs all are patterned after existing typefaces. While “Rubber Soul” has caps from Friz Quadrata, distorted to form an arc, the blue caps below seem to be based on Arial Rounded, see the R. “Abbey Road” and “Cavern” feature a heartline version of Manuscript Capitals.
