Illustrator Ralph Doumit – an alumnus and teacher at ALBA – has sharpened his pencils to share the saga of the prestigious Lebanese school of fine arts in Sin al-Fil.The colored sections of the book present information on how everything started for Doumit in 2005; "The Genesis" of ALBA itself; how the academy developed and attracted international attention; the Civil War and the academy's program of artistic events.This big-haired gent has invented a machine that enables Ralph and Maria to return to the time when ALBA first started, enabling them to visit the academy's founding fathers.This part of the academy's history is illustrated in black-and-white drawings.Doumit's graphic history ends with a touching reunion that brings together each of the founding figures of the academy to celebrate ALBA's 75th anniversary.
