In short, I am working on my final project for my photography class and will be presenting it in book form.  More details about the book here.

The book will include fold-out pages, so the actual pages need to be able to tri-fold, like so:



So I'm going to need pages that are:
a) thick and sturdy, since photographs will be mounted onto them.
b) at the VERY LEAST, 6" x 18".
c) clean and white
d) won't cost me $100 lol, as i've already spent so much on photo supplies this semester

Anyone willing to recommend some good sources to buy paper?  Online is preferred so I don't have to make extra trips, but I can also check local places - I go to school in Contra Costa County in California.

hmm... do you want a card stock for mounting your photos?  it's thick and sturdy, and you can buy sheets of it in 18x24 inches.  ordering paper online is kinda tricky if you don't have sample books of their selection, but you can get cardstock at stationery and craft stores.  the university book store on my campus also stocks it, as do many local art supply stores.

the only other thing that comes to mind is thick watercolor paper, which may be nicer in terms of texture (not just flat and smooth), but it's considerably pricier.
