    ie. the Guardian Collection from CommercialType:

    Guardian Egyptian Headline
    Guardian Egyptian Text
    Guardian Sans Headline
    Guardian Sans Headline Narrow
    Guardian Sans Headline Condensed
    Guardian Sans Headline X Condensed
    Guardian Sans Text
    Guardian Agate Sans

    or Tabac from Suitcase:

    Tabac
    Tabac Sans
    Tabac Slab
    Tabac Mono

    or the Trivia fonts from Storm
    or Stainless or Antenna from Font Bureau
    i mean theres plenty of these superfamilies which makes type choices easier when designing something
    Ill try Tabac

    Totally agree!

    The possibilities are endless. But choosing a typeface works well with versions "sans", "condensed", "serif" and "Slab" to really harmonious compositions.

    I found this page to be so so helpful here:

    http://www.smashingmagazine.com/2010/11/04/best-practices-of-combining-typefaces/

    ...very high quality as normal from 'Smashing Magazine'. I applied the theory to some more wordy products that I made and the results just looked so fine. IMO this is the very highest one can go in typeface work... once one gets it right, the amount of 'polish' it adds to a project is just massive.

    Sometimes sticking with the same font author works... you can feel the family feeling!

    I've recently purchased "A Pocket Guide to Combining Typefaces [Kindle Edition]
    by Tim Brown". It is a great resource. I highly recommend it.

    You can mix sans serif types with serif- or Hybride- types. Or light with bold ones. Script and serif/sans serif will always work.
