Jacki visits the Washington National Cathedral, with illustrator and author David Macaulay. Macaulay's latest book, "Building the Book Cathedral" commemorates his first book "Cathedral", published 26 years ago. In "Cathedral" Macaulay deconstructs and explains how a gothic cathedral moves from an idea into being.
