FYI, Smashing magazine has a good article online on typeface
combining, showing illustrations of both good and bad combinations
with a brief discussion of why one variant works better than the other
in each case. They also have links to other pertinent articles you may
find worthwhile. This is a very good resource focused on web design,
but there are many articles that are also quite applicable to any sort
of written communication design--as this article is.

I hope you find it helpful.
