Typographic matchmaking

This 'font meets font and falls in love' project is so clever. 

'Remember that scene from Fiddler on the Roof when Tevye’s daughters long for the matchmaker to “Find me a find, catch me a catch”? Well, matching contrasting typefaces is almost as difficult as finding that special someone. When it works it seems effortless, like the two were meant for each other. Jim Godfrey created the Typographic Matchmaking poster out of a desire to share with others some type combinations that work well together. To make it interesting, he thought it would be fun to highlight famous combinations from history, literature and life such as Romeo and Juliet, Sonny & Cher, Jack and Jill and even peanut butter and jelly.'
