Styling plots for publication with matplotlib

For the past few years my go-to environment for putting together data visualizations has been an iPython notebook (now Jupyter notebook) loaded up with the %matplotlib inline magic. It's great for iterating through revisions of a plot for whatever presentation or manuscript I'm preparing. Eventually, some of these plots make it into a manuscript and matplotlib provides the tools to make them publication-quality.

I've put together a jupyter notebook outlining a few of the common plot types I find myself routinely assembling as well as some of the styling I regularly use.

You can find this notebook in my notebooks repo or rendered in HTML here:
