Old rare documents in Chestnut Hill still have relevance today

Tucked away in Chestnut Hill, the Philadelphia Print Shop’s Don Cresswell shows us a world once forgotten… The ancient art of map making.

Cresswell’s love for the art of rare documents and maps have made him an expert in his field, and has brought him into the limelight of The Antiques Road Show. Here, we get glimpse into his craft and his passion.
