Book on R graphics

Marcin Kozak
Hi all,

I am looking for a book from which one could learn a wide range of
graphics in R, from the very beginning topics to those advanced
(though not necessarily concerned with a particular method or topic).
I don't look for a list of such books since this is on R's web page, I
am rather interested in your opinion on these books - which you would
recommend. The quality of writing and presentation, easiness of
understanding by non-experts, and such things are all what counts.

Many thanks in advance,
Marcin

Re: Book on R graphics

Spencer Graves
      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.
