I am interested in drawing diagrams, trees, and other simple basic graphical items (all in beamer, as a matter of fact). Can someone recommend on a good book that would explain how to do that? (I am guessing the package of choice for doing this should be TikZ, so maybe I am looking for a good book about TikZ.)

I think I prefer to learn this "by example", but it does not have to be that kind of book.


There's the pgf manual with lots of examples and the Minimal introduction to TikZ. Also, there's a really nice example gallery at TeXample.net. And of course, browsing this site you will also find a good collection of examples.

Since you specifically mentioned trees, besides the trees library from TikZ, the tikz-qtree package could also be of interest for you (it uses TikZ and the qtree syntax).
