theme_igray(base_size = 12, base_family = "")



base font size, given in pts.


base font family


This theme inverts the colors in the theme_gray(), a white panel and a light gray area around it. This keeps a white background for the color scales like theme_bw(). But by using a gray background, the plot is closer to the typographical color of the document, which is the motivation for using a gray panel in theme_gray(). This is similar to the style of plots in Stata and Tableau.
