This bibliography is an introductory guide to the literature of African art and is intended to be a critical "best books" list. It is addressed both to the newcomer as a beginning reading list, and to the specialist as a bibliographic aide-memoire to some of the standard books in the field. As such, it is highly selective, and the very inclusion of a title in this guide constitutes a recommendation, even though particular titles may have limitations. Annotations serve as a guide to the contents.

African art, as defines in this bibliographic guide, embraces all the traditional and contemporary visual arts, crafts, body arts, architecture, the art market and collecting.
