Akashic Insider: Johnny Temple at Work (as related pictorially by the Akashic staff)

With Labor Day and a busy fall season fast approaching, we thought we’d take a break from our daily routine and take you on a little photo tour around our office at the Old American Can Factory in Gowanus. Our eyes were invariably drawn to the objects collected by our publisher, Johnny Temple, and with our tongues firmly in our cheeks, we’ve captioned photographs of said objects with some lazy days of summer observations. If you see him, tell Johnny we’ll get back to work soon (and, as with our senses of humor, also at his expense).
