Re: [R] Book on R graphics

      The first three chapters of Paul Murrell (2006) R Graphics (Chapman & Hall), which Marcin cited, provides a very detailed and useful overview of traditional graphics in R. The rest of the book is devoted to 'lattice' and 'grid' graphics; unfortunately, I have so far not been able to translate that text into improved, routine use of those capabilities.

      You may also wish to consider Deepayan Sarkar (2008) Lattice: Multivariate Data Visualization with R (Springer). I have not read this book, but it looks like it may make it much easier for someone to master 'lattice' graphics from self-study of a book.

      Hope this helps.
