Olderogge, Dmitry. The Hamlyn Publishing Group. Middlesex. 1969. Hardcover.

This book covers mainly the immense range of Central African Art throughout its development from early cave paintings to the present day, and from the peaceful figures of the Baluba to the threatening, fear inspiring statuettes of the Bakongo. The author shows how the art of Africa is also expressed through objects which have no religious character: architecture, the decorations of houses, clothes and cooking utensils, which surround man in his everyday life.
