It's a year and a half since Dr David Gaimster became Auckland Museum's director. Like his predecessor Roy Clare, he's British, and he arrived early in a major strategic transformation of the 155 year-old institution, called Future Museum.

A new book published this month captures his take on the museum he leads. It's part of the Director's Choice series published by Scala, in which the leaders of museums and galleries all over the world are invited to select key items from their collections and tell their stories.

And because it's Bookmarks, that's not the only book he'll be telling us about today.
