This tutorial demonstrates how to hook up a 128×64 graphics LCD display to a Raspberry Pi.
I have another tutorial if you are interested in 16×2 LCD Displays with the Pi. Unlike the 16×2 which is primarily simple text, the graphics LCD makes it easy to draw graphics, different size text in any font and even play games or show animations. This is the Adafruit ST7565 graphics negative LCD display:
It can be powered directly from the Pi’s 3.3V rail. It requires 5 GPIO pins for data. The display has a negative RGB back light which allows you change the foreground color. An additional 3 GPIO pins are required if you want to control the color from the Pi.
