\description{
  Theme based on Chapter 6 "Data-Ink Maximization and
Graphical Design" of Edward Tufte *The Visual Display of
  Quantitative Information*. No border, no axis lines, no
  grids. This theme works best in combination with
  \code{\link{geom_rug}} or \code{\link{geom_rangeframe}}.
}
\details{
  The default font family is set to "serif" as he uses
  serif fonts for labels in "The Visual Display of
Quantitative Information". The serif font used by Tufte
  in his books is a variant of Bembo, while the sans serif
  font is Gill Sans. If these fonts are installed on your
  system, then you can use them with the package
  \bold{extrafont}.
