Grab a copy of Light: Science & Magic. It tells you everything you need to know.

Macros are preferred because they are designed to have a flat focus plane. "Normal" lenses sacrifice that to some extent to bring out other optical qualities.

Everyone is suggesting essentially the same things relative to camera, lens and lighting.
The comments regarding macro lens are important. And the longer the focal length the better.
The benefit of a larger sensor (i.e. full frame, or medium format) is better detail and the benefit of larger photo sites on the sensor.

The custom white balance suggestion is irrelevant. You should be shooting this in raw. Make an image of a Color Checker in the same light. Then use Adobe DNG profile editor to create a custom camera preset for processing the raw image in Lightroom or Photoshop.

If you light it properly HDR is a waste since all the image pixels will be within the dynamic range of your camera.

The advice about shooting only with FF is just silly IMO.

Yea.... Shooting artwork with AK47 is way more fun
;)
