Pantone colour-checked markers? Yes, please!

Pantone is the nearest thing the world has to a Security Council for colour. It made it possible for us to know what colours we would be printing. And now the developer of the world's first color matching system has launched its own colour markers in a collaboration with Royal Talens. 

Alas, we don't get all 2,000-odd colours from the Pantone system, but there are 108 of them. And each one has been designed to faithfully match a specific hue in the system. There are also marker inks and art pads (also see our pick of the best pens for artists).
