On March 11 1993, during our March Break trip to Toronto, I bought a Clairefontaine notebook from the University of Toronto bookstore. That notebook sparked my love for the brand, and in 1997, I showed it to Neil, who managed the NSCAD bookstore, and asked him if he could order some. He did, and thus began my sequence of Clairefontaine notebooks starting in 1998.

The very start of what would become my Journal (Journal Zero), the second Notebook (002) after my 1986 Diary, and the first Pocketbook (01). In 2022 I established a cataloging code system, and as the first pocketbook it is PAA.
This was transcribed onto by blog in 2006, which later became the book Eleven Thirty One.
