Open source typeface pairings

I always love finding new typeface pairings to use across my personal and client projects, but I find many suggested pairings come with a hefty price tag (rightly so - premium typefaces are normally always worth their cost).

So, I’ve curated this personal list of 5 exceptionally beautiful typeface pairings that will cost you absolutely nothing. Open source FTW.
