How can I change the size of only the yaxis label? Right now, I change the size of all labels using
pylab.rc('font', family='serif', size=40)
but in my case, I would like to make the y-axis label larger than the x-axis. However, I'd like to leave the tick labels alone.
I've tried, for example:
but I only get:
AttributeError: 'str' object has no attribute 'set_fontsize'
So, obviously that doesn't work. I've seen lots of stuff for tick sizes, but nothing for the axis labels themselves.

If you are using the 'pylab' for interactive plotting you can set the labelsize at creation time with
If you use
pyplot programmatically you can either set the fontsize on creation with
ax.set_ylabel('Example', fontsize=40) or afterwards with
