Graphics with PGF and TikZ

Andrew Mertz and William Slough


Beautiful and expressive documents often require beautiful and expressive graphics. PGF and its front-end TKZ walk a thin line between power, portability and usability, giving a TeX-like approach to graphics. While PGF and TKZ are extensively documented, first-time users may prefer learning about these packages using a collection of graduated examples.
