Spectra AD™ Markers are an alcohol-based twin tip marker that features brilliant color with less odor than the traditional AD® Marker. Painstakingly developed over several years, Spectra AD™ Markers were designed tip to tip, inside and out, with the artist in mind. Each air-tight cap closely matches the marker's ink, the barrel is ergonomically shaped and prevents rolling, ink capacity allows for maximum draw out, and the twin nibs offer the artist a wide range of line options in one marker.
Created in 1974, AD® Marker was one of many in the long line of solvent-based markers used for advertising, fashion and conceptual illustration from the 1950s - 1980s. The brilliant colored, transparent marker strokes are a classic feature of this era of illustration. Today, AD® Marker is the top of its class for Art and Design. The AD® Marker laydown, ink capacity, and special effects are truly unique. It's no wonder why many artists say, "There are markers, and then there are AD® Markers!"
The newest member of the AD® Marker family is the double-ended Spectra AD® Marker introduced to the marketplace in 2016. It features 95 colors and a blender, all with a mini tri-nib on one end and a flexible brush tip on the other. They are a perfect complement to the AD® Marker line.
