Rotate LCD 16x2! Can this be done?

Is a LCD 16 (wide) x 2 (high) display able to rotate and display font as a 2 (wide) x 16 (high) ?
If true please explain in easy mode.
else tell me to give up and rage quit.
Thank you.

Each character is at fixed 8x5 pixels with gap in between each characters. The ROM library of characters can’t be rotated and IIRC only has room in RAM for 8 custom characters so even if you designed custom font that is rotated 90’ it would be 5 pixels high and 8 wide for each character, not pretty.

It is possible but not going to be easy. It may be easier to use graphic LCD instead of character LCD.
