Individuals that use \TeX{} (or any of its derivatives) to typeset
their documents generally take extra measures to ensure paramount
visual quality. Such documents often contain mathematical expressions
and graphics to accompany the text. Since \TeX{} was designed ``for
the creation of beautiful books\Dash and especially for books that
contain a lot of mathematics''~\cite{knuth:texbook}, it is clear that
it is sufficient (and in fact \textit{exceptional}) at dealing with
mathematics and text. \TeX{} was not designed for creating graphics;
however, certain add-on packages can be used to create modest figures.
\TeX{}, however, is capable of including graphics created with other
utilities in a variety of formats. Because of their scalability,
Encapsulated PostScript (\EPS) graphics are the most common types
used. This paper introduces \MP{} and demonstrates the fundamentals
needed to generate high-quality \EPS{} graphics for inclusion into
\TeX-based documents.
