Electroluminescent strips

Look for electroluminescent material. You see it being used for
LCD back lights in small sizes. There is no technical reason that
it cannot be manufactured in large sheets and I would expect that
a Google search would find it..

10,000V will make any paper glow ... ;-)

Yep...Ive got some.  I'll have to go look to see who its from.  Not cheap but VERY cool stuff. Great for backlighting photo's and things like that.  I have a A size sheet and power supply, purchased for a project that never materialized.  Good thing I can write off those things  :-)

I've heard problems with short life expectancies though, on the only of
only a few thousand hours. On the other hand, some sources claim
"theoretically unlimited" Reminds me of leds almost...

I'd rate electroluminescent panels as having far far less
lifetime than a good LED. Certainly "thousands" of hours
would be at the upper limit of what I've seen in practice.
We used to use them for backlights for largish LCD displays
in vehicles and they were a finite lifetime item - maybe a
few years in a heavily used taxi. Their output fades notably
with time. Drive waveform and voltage can influence
longevity substantially AFAIR. Use of DC drive greatly
reduces lifetime.
