Books About Elevators

Well one thing that's interesting is how things that are a tiny part of our daily lives turn out to have a whole culture behind them. There are people thinking about elevators all day long, talking about elevators, holding elevator conventions, drawing elevator cartoons to share with their elevator buddies, etc. It's like the fractal nature of human culture. Any tiny bit you look at, turns out to be a whole world, one that is both familiar and strange.
