Su Mwamba lives in Derby, United Kingdom. She spends her life being side-tracked by various & random creative diversions (such as DIY crafts, mail art, & fairy tales), and her zines are an ever-evolving reflection of that.

Su has written more zines than she cares to remember, many of which are no longer available. She self-publishes under the imprint of 'The Tangled Press', a name derived from her TangleCrafts blog. All zines are printed on recycled paper or paper from renewable sources. Below is a very selective zinography.


  • Telaic Fantasy (2009-2010)
  • The Borrowers Zine (2009)
  • ZineBomb (2009)
  • Enchanted Times (2009-2011)
  • Mulberry Digest (2010-2011)
  • Meta Mail Art Zine (2010)
  • Going Postal Gallery (2010)
  • Valley of Dolls (2011)
