    I've always wondered the same thing about combinations.. I tend to be a more "gut instinct" person and pair what I feel looks best. Most often I pair a script with a serif or slab serif.

    Morgan Lining works great with Nexa, lovely slab/sans contrast.
    Museo Slab with Avenir Next generates great results too.

    I quite like Quadraat and Quadraat Sans, but I've also used Minion and Myriad.

    Look for Fonts in Use

    in my opinion it's very helpfull to see how other designers combined fonts. for exampel on magazine oder books.
    One good page to look at the work ..

    Same designer

    I tend to combine a sans serif with a serif font, looking for fonts that share similar proportions, x-heights, ascender- and descender lengths. Sometimes I try to combine fonts by the same designer, because they will often share a certain core sensibility, even if the fonts are very different in style. Typographers like Adrian Frutiger are great starting points for great same designer-combinations. The same goes for foundries like Klim, H&FJ, TypeTogether and DSType, giving you a more contemporary feel along the way.

    Combining Fonts

    I've been using Minion a lot recently as a text face (it's just awesome), and I'm finding it looks good with either Myriad (another Adobe font), Frutiger, Gill and Avenir.

    Also,

    Combining typefaces is challenging and fun, but it takes practice. Successful combinations are partly a matter of good taste, which can be tough to develop. And finding typefaces that work well together often takes a lot of time .
    This pocket guide is for designers and developers who want to make better choices about type, build typographic expertise, and say smarter things about fonts in use – without wasting any time.
    The point here is to get your job done, and grow your skills along the way.

    I've recently tried Oswald and Corbert, both free fonts, they work really well together!

    Thumbs up Been messing with this combo for a little bit

    I've really started to like Neutraface 2 Display (for headlines in all caps) and Stag Book for the body text
