Beautiful boxplots and sassy small multiples

Last week, I posted about implementing design principles in Python’s graphic library, matplotlib. I received lots of great feedback, and made another tutorial, specifically about boxplots and “small multiples”. Small multiples are a concept coined by Edward Tufte about having many plots using the exact same axes, allowing the reader to discover patterns by eye, though here I also add linear regression to aid the eye.

Enjoy the tutorial here!
