Pierre Albert-Birot (1876 - 1967) was a French avant-garde author.

Born in Angoulôme, he moved to Paris in 1894. There he attended art school and befriended Gustave Moreau. He worked for five decades as a restorer for antique dealer Madame Lelong.

He began writing after he met the musician Germaine de SurVille in 1913. From 1916 to 1919 he edited his magazine SIC, an acronym for Sons Idées Couleurs ("Sounds Ideas Colors"), which featured writings by futurists, surrealism, and dadaists. His first volume of poems was Trente et un Poèmes de Poche (1917). His novel Grabinoulor appeared in 1919.
