It's on the cover of Prof. Hsu's book on multiple comparisons. The new book by Heiberger and Holland also uses it. The files that support that book can be downloaded from springeronline.com, search for the authors' names. It comes in one .tar.gz file. You can see mmc1.eps and mmc2.eps in hh/mcomp/figure to get some idea of what it looks like.

The bar plot with error bars are all over scientific journals, which is quite a pity. The use of letters or underlines to show groups that are not significantly different is awkward, and do not work when there are unequal sample sizes among groups.
