original Us edition

Although I did not grow up with these covers, they are familiar to me. They are beautiful and convey the theme of the books very well, apart from the last one, what is he meant to be doing? Just looks like he is proclaiming a faith or something. Even the fifth one just seems like he is trying to keep a secret. But I still love them.

What do you think of these covers? Did you grow up with these covers?
