I know this might be far fetched as a topic on this site, but I don't see where else it would belong (statistics SE? meh, I think we are more oriented toward producing clean and readable stuff than they are).
I am aware of Tufte's work as a good reference for producing quality graphics and figures, however I am wondering, which of his books/works should I read? If I were to read only one of his books to inspire myself in making greater TeX documents, figures and graphics, which one should it be?
Additional information: Note that I am writing mainly scientific stuff, machine learning and computer engineering papers, also my thesis.
Also, I've heard that some LaTeX classes were inspired from Tufte's designs, which one are they? In what regard were they inspired by his works? From which book?
