Although Vargo relies significantly on the imagery of the numbingly ubiquitous Rider-Waite (and--more anciently--Marseille) tradition, the art he presents is different enough in certain respects to belong to its own category--a distinction reserved for precious few Tarot packs!
It will certainly be a great pack with which to try out many games catalogued by Sir Dummett and Mr. McLeod in their monumental "A History of Games Played With the Tarot Pack: The Game of Triumphs", in two volumes, by Mellen Press (this title itself most highly recommended).
The next step for master artist Vargo to take would be a Gothic reinterpretation of the renowned Visconti-Sforza imagery, or perhaps even a Gothic Minchiate pack.
