José Corti is a French publishing house and book shop located in Paris, France, and was founded in 1925.

It is named after its founder, José Corticchiato (1895-1984); it is one of France's most prestigious and low-profile independent publishing houses. José Corticchiato started his business by publishing the work of his surrealist friends, including André Breton, Paul Éluard, and Louis Aragon.

José Corti's book shoop is located in the Latin Quarter in Paris, at 11 Rue Médicis, 75006 Paris VIème.

The firm was the lifelong publisher of French author Julien Gracq, and owns the publishing rights to Jan Potocki's masterpiece The Manuscript Found in Saragossa.

Its motto is "Rien de Commun" ("Nothing Commonplace").
