theory of data graphics maximise data-ink ratio, within reason maximise data density and the size of the data matrix, within reason treat graphics as paragraphs and shape them appropriately integrity of data graphics always show data in their context try to produce a small lie factor show data variation, not design variation use as many dimensions as the number of dimensions in your data how to apply Tufte’s principles in R I have recently completed a great reading: Edward Tufte’s The visual display of quantitative information.
