Graphical Practice. Graphical excellence ; Graphical integrity ; Sources of graphical integrity and sophistication. -- Theory of Data Graphics. Data-ink and graphical redesign ; Chartjunk: vibrations, grids, and ducks ; Data-ink maximization and graphical design ; Multifunctioning graphical elements ; Data density and small multiples ; Aesthetics and technique in data graphical design. The subject of this book is on statistical graphics, charts, tables. It deals with the theory and practice in the design of data graphics, and includes 250 illustrations of the best (and a few of the worst) statistical graphics, with detailed analysis of how to display data for precise, effective, quick analysis. Also offered is information on the design of the high-resolution displays, small multiples, editing and improving graphics, and the data-ink ratio. Time-series, relational graphics, data maps, multivariate designs, as well as detection of graphical deception: design variation vs. data variation, and sources of deception are discussed.
