Learn to draw pictures using data from Nathan Yau’s book Live Data: A Guide to Data Visualization.

Preparations: First import Matplotlib and pandas, read the CSV file with pandas, and then create an image and a coordinate axis

```import pandas as pd
from matplotlib import pyplot as plt
fig,ax=plt.subplots()```

Let’s look at this data file first.

```   Year  Price
0  1991   0.29
1  1995   0.32
2  1999   0.33
3  2001   0.34
4  2002   0.37
5  2006   0.39
6  2007   0.41
7  2008   0.42
8  2009   0.44
9  2010   0.44```

This data is very simple, showing the change of US postage in 1991 -2010.

Let’s draw a ladder diagram to show the change of postage.

The code is as follows:

```import pandas as pd
from matplotlib import pyplot as plt
fig,ax=plt.subplots(figsize=(10,4))

ax.step(postage["Year"],postage["Price"],where='post')
ax.set_title("US Postage Fee") #Setting up the title
ax.set_xticks([i for i in postage["Year"]]) #Set X axis scale
ax.set_yticks([]) #Removal of Y axis scale
#Remove the border
ax.spines["top"].set_visible(False)
ax.spines["bottom"].set_visible(False)
ax.spines["left"].set_visible(False)
ax.spines["right"].set_visible(False)
