2. Amac's "Nock-Nock" pocket trick with a small poencil. £135. Very rare, hence the price, which is what it now sells for on eBay on the rare occasions when it is offered for sale. Clever thinking by Amac later developed and improved "Nock-Nock" into his "Educated Pencil" Anyone lucky enough to own both, like I did, will realise how Amac's mind was thinking, to create his "Educated Pencil", which I regard as the best pocket trick ever invented, because everything used can be thoroughly examined, and the spectator can follow Amac's moves with the pencil, the tube, and the two end caps, but cannot get the pencil to stand upright no matter how long they try.

On the right, is a photograph of Granville Taylor & Valerie presenting Amac's original "Find the Lady" illusion act, with Amac's original equipment bought from Lucille Lyle in 1960, together with sole performing rights throughout the world. Performed by Granville Taylor (Faust) in the U.K. and in Japan at the Kokusai Theatre in Tokyo in 1975, where it was televised for the first and only time, but without the final pay-off "explanation" owing to limited rehearsal time. (Photographed during rehearsals at Middlesbrough Empire Theatre, w/c December 4th. 1961). "Positively the Most Amazing Illusion Ever Conceived", as featured in succession by the inventor AMAC, THE GREAT LYLE, and FAUST. SOLD.
