 More Details:

A unique book documenting Gibran's true-life journey from life to death and projecting the beauty and aroma of cultures. Presented in two volumes, 1200 pages, 18 Chapters, each chapter is a journey by itself. Portraying Gibran’s methodology of thought through a new narrative style using his own slogans accompanied by relevant paintings, manuscripts and photographs.

The book is called “Alive” because of the famous slogans of Gibran Kahlil Gibran... and the well-known quote he wanted written on his grave: “I am Alive like you and standing beside you. Close your eyes and look around and you will see me in front of you” -Gibran. “Alive” was achieved through an association with great scholars, Lebanese and American NGO’s, and published by Dar Al Moalef in collaboration with Gibran’s National Committee which has enriched the author’s work with all the priceless manuscripts and paintings.

A passion from within…. The story begins with art, beauty, and love signed by Gibran Kahlil Gibran. The book is a collective work of 200 volunteers from all over the world who stamped its success for a lifetime; among them are artist Rudy Rahme, photographer Ziad Rahme (Bsharri photos), French artist and photo collector Robert De Alexerdian, and photographer Samer Behum for the Baalbek and Boston photos.

My journey started as a journalist (1999 till 2016), diving into the world of rightful missions to highlight and endorse word of truth. I learned from the dawn the beauty of new shining ideas, and from the night the value of shining stars that altogether create beauty, and each has its stunning originality. My journalistic career can be projected by being a journalist and a fighter for the truth, and I stand out by critical thinking! After 15 years’ experience of investigative/political journalism, it was time for another journey. “Alive” book journey started… The first art encyclopedia masterpiece for Gibran Kahlil Gibran, indeed a one of a kind….

Why did I select Gibran Khalil Gibran?
Because it is an outstanding love and genuine wisdom from the East. In the heart of humanity, let’s be inspired by the Gibran’s voice who spoke to his country, heart to heart and mind to mind. On the ebbs and tide of destiny, a young Lebanese child sailed to the USA with the beauty of sketches to revive human truth, a poet who has become the third best worldwide after Shakespeare.
