Looking for the font that "Zack" and "Miri" is set in: http://viewaskew.com/images/zmlogo.gif

Anybody know? Thanks in advance!

I suspect that this is Bookman Bold that's been squashed and heavily modified.

Yes it's Bookman, but neither squashed nor modified.
It's Bookman, with Bookman Swash for the capital M and Z.

Herb, thanks for pointing out the swash.

I still say it's squashed -- look at the height of the lower-case letters in the logo, and compare with Bookman bold...

It's squashed AND swashed ;)

The result might have been manipulated - here's a comparison with no compression or manipulation, just two different font sizes for upper case and lower case:


The tittle maintains its original shape (which is very slightly oval), but the tops of the i's and r do look flatter. The r-i ligature is cleaner in the logo, with the tittle appearing to be eliminated and the letterspacing changed. So I agree that the final image was graphically edited or manipulated, but I'm not sure how.

Nice work ;)

Depending on how old the logo is, it could be Bookmania.
