    Just make your own. It's not all that hard, and you would have complete control of the paper type...

    I've made simple ones with maybe 36 - 48 - 60 pages and just sewed them together with yarn or string. You can spend a day making about fifty of them and save a good bit of money by buying the paper in reams from a commercial graphic arts paper supplier, since most of the paper is acid free today (except for the really dark colors like black and dark blue and maroon.).

    I was looking for something like that a while back but with little success (although my local art suppliers are pretty limited)

    I did find a range of pastel sketchpads made by Daler-Rowney ("Ingres") that are pretty sturdy and have a nice range of mid tones, but they're expensive and a bit thicker and more textured than what I was after initially.

    If I need another anytime soon, I'll be going with Ilaekaes advice- just get some toned paper and attack it with a hole punch.

    I found mine made out of recycled paper at my local art store. Cost about 20 bucks...
