Su Mwamba is a mail artist and zinester living in Derby, United Kingdom. She spends her life being side-tracked by various & random creative diversions such as DIY crafts, faux postage, & fairy tales, and her zines are an ever-evolving reflection of that. Although primarily an outlet for Su's own creative endeavors, later zines also include contributions from fellow artists, writers and zinesters, including Diane Gilleland and Penelope Harris.

Su self-publishes under the imprint of The Tangled Press, a name derived from her TangleCrafts blog. Later issues & reprints of the Enchanted Times are released under the imprint of E. T. Printworks. All TangleCrafts zines are printed on recycled paper or paper from renewable sources, usually in very small print runs. Below is a selective zinography, excluding some mini-zines which were never widely distributed.
