I'm interested in the font used for "THE BEATLES" and "HARD DAY'S NIGHT". I'm looking for this font or one similar to it. Sorry for the lo res file. Thanks!
Barbieri has a similar overall feel, although the individual letterforms are not very close.
Much of the stuff in those days was hand-drawn, though based on the existing (Letraset) forms/typefaces. If you want to get the same result, well, follow the same rule.
The late Bob Alonso's Animated Gothic is pretty similar, although maybe the baseline bounce is too much. I looked at his stuff right away, because he did a lot of commercial lettering work.
