Quotes Project

Design a purely typographic poster using your randomly chosen quote. Use one typeface, use all characters and ligatures. 

I picked the quote
'I've had a wonderful time, but this wasn't it' - Groucho Marx

I've refreshed my memory on Groucho Marx and researched a small selection of fonts to find one that  compliments the quote and Marx. My initial choice was Times New Roman, a classic serif type, through further research I discovered that it was inspired by the font Plantin. I am debating, however, it both of these fonts (Plantin in particular) are too traditional and fail to represent Marx as a witty intelligent person . At the moment I'm considering Futura....

Work so far....
