I am thinking of making a journal/notebook in a midieval cord/board binding with clasps, (Really for a handwritten recipe book that I can add to as my recipe collection grows),and I am looking for a good paper for the signature.

Some basic requirements:

-Compatible with fountain/dip pens
-Acid free(preferably a bit alkaline/archival)
-strong enough to withstand bookbinding and use in a book
-not too heavy or light (around 110gsm)
fairly inexpensive per sheet

I want the finished signatures to be around 10 by 13 inches. Any suggestions?

Would Mohawk superfine be good?
