The Art of Copying Art (Palgrave Macmillan) won the 2023 Book of the Year, AWAPA:
Copying art for purposes of training or replicating artwork for collections, filmsets or as forgeries is an ancient practice. Jackson, with wit, scholarship and investigative brilliance, brings together the different traditions of copying art in this engaging and very readable volume. This is an original and pioneering piece of research that opens a field where many scholars have trespassed but none, till now, have settled and fully investigated.
