    I've been searching for a way to typeset graphics in plain teX and

In addition to the pdfTeX and PGF answers already cited:

For simple .epsf graphics:
\input epsf.sty  % works with both plain and latex
... \epsfbox{filename.eps} ...
Read the beginning of epsf.sty for other features.

If you want to do more complicated things, you can use the LaTeX
graphics, graphicx, and color packages in plain TeX, via Eplain.
\input eplain

(See http://tug.org/eplain for full documentation, etc.)

Happy picturing,

P.S. Robin, perhaps
http://www.tex.ac.uk/cgi-bin/texfaq2html?label=impgraph should be
updated with some of the above?
