The 1922 Classic

The 1922 classic book is also now available in remastered and reset Paperback and Kindle format. These books are the result of countless hours of careful transcription and error checking. They also contain high-resolution images scanned from original film transparencies from C.K. Shepherd’s personal archives.

The Audio Book

But I also am presenting the first and only authorized audiobook of the 1922 classic. This audiobook came out better than I imagined. Will de Renzy-Martin, a professional narrator, renders all the words in C.K.’s book with his wonderful age-appropriate British accent. The sample you can hear for free is only the tip of the iceberg. When you listen to this book and close your eyes, it is as if C.K. himself is with you telling you about his adventures.
