Anna Rawhiti-Connell of The Spinoff reviews Shifting Grounds – the new illustrated history book by Lucy Mackintosh, Curator of History at Tāmaki Paenga Hira/Auckland War Memorial Museum. Her beautifully laid-out book concentrates on three places in Tāmaki Makaurau as rich and eloquent examples of “landscapes as archive”. The observational and lyrical style of writing, and the vast number of photographs, maps and illustrations, are a mesh of the contemporary references and that which would be deemed historical.
